What's in Store for HIV Prevention in the Future?

Once upon a time, our HIV prevention toolkit consisted of just one lousy, dull instrument: condoms.

Nowadays, we have not only condoms in all colors, shapes and sizes, but also female condoms (hint: you don't have to be female to use them), pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) and the mama of all discoveries: HIV treatment as prevention (TasP).
